Default swapping springs

I have a rough country 5" lift with the fixed rough country control arms. I want to go down to a 3" progressive spring. Do I have to change any other hardware or the control arms and do I have to worry about the driveline angle?

As far as I know lowering the truck 2 inches shouldn't effect the pinion angles but watch for the slip yokes bottoming out under load if you want to check it take out the front drive shaft and move it to the rough position of new angle and see if it binds

Also would I need to change any steering geometry after installing the new 3" springs?

That I'm not to sure about. But you may have to have a look at the shocks and limiting straps if you have them.
